Prüftechnik: Precision laser shaft alignment
The new RS5 sensor for the proven measurement system Optalign Smart RS introduces unique features to the mid-range shaft alignment segment. Smarter and faster, the new sensor also scores high in terms of usability. The XL HD PSD detector size, combined with the powerful ExtendRange functionality makes the measurement range virtually unlimited. In real terms, this means that large misalignments can even be measured over long distances. With the 5-axis technology, it is also the only sensor in this segment to offer Concurrent Live Move for machine corrections. This enables live monitoring of horizontal and vertical machine corrections at the same time, with the sensor at any rotational shaft position.
The powerful synergy between the new, faster CPU and the MEMS inclinometer ensures a finer and faster screening of measurement points during a sweep. Far more measurement readings can be taken during shaft rotation, which ensures highly repeatable results even under mechanical constraints such as backlash. Users can easily view and check results at their convenience in the results table before starting with machine adjustments. The integrated ambient light compensation makes measurements possible even under strong, direct sunlight. The reduced energy consumption also means longer laser and sensor battery run-time, so that even lengthy applications are easily managed.
